Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against evangelicals who embrace evolution and deny that Adam, the first man, was created by supernatural means.
"Evangelicals who embrace evolution have a few proposals for interpreting Adam, including that he's the head of a tribe, an archetype of humanity, or that he did not even exist," Ham said on Tuesday, and linked to an article by Answers in Genesis' U.K. General Manger Simon Turpin.
In the article, Turpin argues that an increasing number of evangelicals today are losing their faith in a literal interpretation of the creation account in Genesis, and do not believe that Adam was created by supernatural means. more >>
NEW YORK — Al Sharpton called Republican 2016 presidential frontrunner Donald Trump's pending meeting with a group of black pastors on Monday a "smart thing" but warned the clergymen not to be "trumped by Trump."
"It's a smart thing he's doing to meet with black ministers 'cause the majority of black voters still go to church and that's why we are conveniently Democrats. But the question is, now that you're in the room with them can you fill the room with answering real questions," said Sharpton.
The civil rights activist and Baptist minister revealed at a press conference at the National Action Network's Harlem headquarters in New York City on Monday that he has spoken to a number of the ministers scheduled to meet with Trump in the now controversial meeting and he urged them "don't let him off the hook." more >>

"90 Minutes in Heaven," the stirring film of Don Piper's miraculous trip to heaven and back, is coming to DVD and On Demand Dec. 1. The Christian Post caught up with Piper to talk about the making of the film and the real-life struggles he faced after he died and came back to life.
"It's surreal to watch people be you and say your words and reenact a part of your life; it's quite disarming to sit there and watch it," Piper reflected on the filming experience to CP.
"There were times when they would actually turn to us after filming a scene and say 'what do you think?' You don't normally have that happen, so Giving Pictures did everything they could to make this an authentic film," Piper revealed. more >>
The teaching pastor who took over for controversial author and Pastor Rob Bell at Mars HIll Bible Church in Grandville, Michigan, announced Sunday that he will soon be leaving the church and explained that "being a pastor is not really who I am."
Kent Dobson, who assumed the teaching pastor position at the 12,000-member megachurch when Bell left the congregation and moved to California in 2012, told the congregation during Sunday's service that he will be stepping down from his role in the coming months to pursue a "greater mystery."
He told the congregants that he has never felt right serving in the role of pastor because he has always been "drawn to the edges of religion and faith and God." He has even stated a few times that he doesn't know "what we mean by God anymore?" more >>
Over 40 percent of women who have had an abortion say they were frequent churchgoers at the time they ended their pregnancies and about a half of them say they kept their abortions hidden from church members, new LifeWay Research shows.
In a survey released Monday that was sponsored by the pregnancy center support organization Care Net, researchers from the Christian research group LifeWay found that about 70 percent of women who had an abortion self-identified as Christians, while 43 percent say they attended a Christian church at least once per month or more at the time they aborted their child.
The survey, which interviewed 1,038 respondents who've all had abortions, found that 20 percent of the respondents attended church at least once a week at the time of their first pregnancy termination. Six percent said they attended church more than once per week, while about 54 percent said they rarely or never attended a church. more >>
